The natural vegetation cover acts as a reservoir of biodiversity in the face of climate changes
A team from the Desertification Research Centre (CIDE) collaborates in a study on the role of the so-called 'facilitating plants' in the survival of other plants in adverse conditions. The implications of this work, in which a total of 141 different plant species from the south of the Iberian Peninsula were recorded, are very important in the current context of climate change.

An important migratory route of young neurons in the brains of newborns has been discovered
A study published in Nature, with notable participation from the University of Valencia, has identified a new migratory route of young neurons in the human infant brain. This migratory pathway extends from the lateral ventricle, where these cells are born, to the entorhinal cortex, an area interconnected with the regions where memory and learning are consolidated.
